On September 26, unknown militants launch several rockets from the opposition-held areas in northwestern Syria at the district of Halab al-Jadidah in the western part of the city of Aleppo, according to Syrian pro-government sources.
The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reporter in Aleppo said that one of the rockets injured a civilian and damaged several buildings and cars in the district.
No group has claimed responsibility for this attack so far. However, pro-government activists believe that the rockets were launched by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) or the Turkish backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) because they both have positions in western Aleppo.
The attack is a violation of the Russian-Turkish deconfliction agreement on the governorate of Idlib, which was reached on September 17. Under the agreement, a 15-20km demilitarized zone should be established around Idlib, therefore in western Aleppo, before October 10.
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Russian Aerospace Forces will likely respond to the rocket attack in the upcoming hours in order to deter the militants in western Aleppo.
